Movement Studies

Movement studies is a major in which students are provided a breadth of choices for an active professional career.  The opportunities to study coaching and administration, fitness and wellness, adapted physical education, and outdoor education provide the student with an academically challenging path which matches their specific area of interest.  Our most recent graduates have gone on to become coaches at different levels, personal trainers, corporate fitness supervisors, strength and conditioning coaches, outdoor instructors, and graduate students.
